About us

We asked filmmaker Bertina Kramer to make a short video about the Boat Refugee Foundation. Who are we and what do we do? She went to Lesvos to discover our story and made two beautiful videos.

The result gave us a wow feeling. Yes, this is us. This is what we do, why we do it and the people we do it for.

Talent and resilience in Moria refugee camp

Refugees from many different countries reside in Moria refugee camp on Lesvos. Every refugee has his own story. A combination of all sorts of languages, religions and cultures come together in one camp. Despite all traumatic events, fortunately, we also see many beautiful things. People with a lot of talent!

Ward Hopstaken and Wendy Hoogendijk made three short films. Personal stories about three people in camp Moria. In the videos below, Wafaa (Syria), Hadi (Iran) and Stefan (Cameroon) share their story and the passion that gets them through this difficult time. Three special films about talent and resilience in Moria refugee camp.
